Web Site Progress

Ok, this is what I have done with my website so far:

This is the main page, the drawing will eventually have color, and all of the links will have some sort of mouseover effect to show that they are clickable more than just the hand cursor.

This is the sculpture portfolio page. I designed the navigation to look and act like windows in an operating system, thus getting rid of the need for a constant navigation bar. You can then click on any of the images to get something like you see below.

This is an enlarged view of whichever piece you click on (in this case the coffee table). This opens in a separate "window", keeping everything well organized.

I am happy with the way it is progressing so far, and I am experimenting with different color combinations and link icons. I am trying to make the "windows" moveable/resizeable with Javascript, but my main focus right now is getting everything operating properly and then adding extra features.

The Uses of the Internet

This following image is a graph representing the activities people were engaged in using a map of the internet. The map is a visual representation of all of the connections between main server hubs around the world.

The Everyday Panorama

This is the everyday panorama

Drastic technical difficulties, this still isn't the entire video, the end got corrupted somewhere along the way, I will be re-posting it soon.

Narrative x3

This happened to me last year around spring break. I drove all the way home, and was ready to fly to the Bahamas, when I realized that I had left my passport all the way back in Syracuse. Normally a 4 and a half hour drive each way I made it door to door in 8 with just enough time to catch my plane. I first tried to explain this narrative with stock photos, because my drawing skills aren't what I would like them to be. I then decided to just simplify the images, as the assignment was more about the story.

The Everyday Panorama

In this piece I investigate the phenomenon that is modern day communication. Every time I received a text in a new place, I took a series of images that together formed a two dimensional representation of three dimensional space. The warping of space that is created by these images is much akin to the warping that occurs when we talk to people across long distances. ideas, thoughts, words are transferred between two individuals that are miles apart. Text messages alienate people from each other even more; all emotion and intonation of tone is lost in a text message. Over the course of four days I recorded all of the texts I received, the time I received them, who I received them from, and my responses.
